Oh yes, of course. The boats on the hard, duh! Too many beers, not enough sailing.

On the hard or not, stowing halyards off the mast is easier on the mast finish, and more importantly avoids annoying your neighbours with halyard noise in your slip, or at anchor. It's just plain good practice.

Many marinas sound like wind-chime Hell with so many absentee owners letting their halyards flap in the breeze!

OK - enough of that, lets get this thread back on track - bring on the pics!

My headsail lines run to the cockpit, so I am not used to seeing that. You can store your main halyard like mine is, after the TV antenna fiasco. Its 3/4's of the way up, wrapped around the shroud, definately not making any noise!

"I'm a bit surprised to see a single spreader rig at 38 feet. Interested to know if you'd change that if the opportunity arose......"

I am not sure. I really like the simplicity of Synergy's rig. It is very easy to tune and is pretty forgiving and yet very responsive to backstay adjustment. The spreaders are a little long and too far raked aft to be ideal but Synergys' real windward limitation is her keel, rather than her rig, which is quite outdated and so stalls if you try to pinch up too high. In otherwords I don't think she would be helped by a double spreader rig.

My intire sailing career consists of about a dozen times out on my Sunfish, this cutter is a whole new world.
Anyway, heres a few pics of te maiden voyage.
Dude you need larger speakers, nobody is going to hear you on the East Coast.

Way to go Fred. Wish I'd had a boat like that at your age.
